Igor! IT'S ALIVE, IT'S ALIVE!!! (At least Dr. Frankenstein never signed NDA and could share the secret… if he wanted to.)

Georgia Military College proudly announces successful implementation of the next generation of Microsoft’s communication and collaboration platform – code name “Wave 14” in Production environment! We are now moving users from OCS 2007 R2 to Wave 14 faster than the Congress approval rating is going down… which means – fast as we can!

I am very excited to see the product evolving in positive direction. The new features are not randomly thrown here and there (because “Cisco have it”), but rather carefully crafted based on end-user needs and feedback. I am confident that Wave 15 will be a complete Enterprise solution simply because more and more companies today see the added value of UC to the business process, which means more and more feedback will flow to Microsoft…

Indeed, to talk about the deployment steps and post screenshots now will be (most probably) irrelevant, since this is Beta and any changes can occur between now and RTM. I strongly encourage my colleagues from the EDU sector to evaluate the solution as soon as it becomes publicly available. It is a live change experience, believe me. Those who hate you will hate you even more, but “undecided” will join you faster than Arlen Specter went Democrat…
